The reason I asked this was that I have another computer which was upgraded from Windows 95 and seeing that I lack memory, I was wondering if I could use the ram chip from it .

amount of memory and memory type are two different things....you can tell the memory type by the slots and size of the stick.

If it fits in the slot correctly, it will work---then just do the math to determine how much RAM is present
